Either way, taking a screenshot in Wear OS is a breeze. So, if you want to take a screenshot to show off how a watch face looks on your watch or to save a notification and see it later, check out the following tutorial where we explain step by step how to take a screenshot on your watch with Wear OS.

Steps to take a screenshot in Wear OS

To capture the Wear OS screen, you must necessarily have the mobile with which your smartwatch is paired at hand. Of course, said mobile must have the Wear OS app. Do you meet these requirements? Then follow these steps to capture:

  • On your watch, go to the place or section where you want to capture.
  • Now, open the Wear OS app on your mobile.
    • Note: the smartwatch must be connected to the mobile via Bluetooth. If it is well connected, the name of the watch should appear in the app followed by the message “Connected via Bluetooth”.
  • Then tap the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
  • Select Capture screen on the clock.
  • After doing this, you will receive a notification on your mobile that says that the screenshot of the watch can now be sent. If you press this notification, you will be able to edit the capture or share it in any app.

Clever! If the option to Capture the screen on the clock does not appear on your mobile, we recommend you activate the Android developer options and try again. However, this should not be necessary if you have the Wear OS app and watch up to date.

How to take long screenshots in Wear OS

By default, the Wear OS app takes snapshots of the exact size and shape of the watch. If you want to take long screenshots, you should use the ADB tool. This method is more complicated than the previous one, since you need a PC and follow all these steps :

  • Turn on Bluetooth debugging on the watch: go to Settings> Watch info> And tap the Build number seven times. Then enable debugging from the Wear OS app in Advanced settings.
  • On the PC, open a command window from the ADB directory.
  • Then send these two commands:
    • adb forward tcp: 4444 localabstract: / adb-hub
    • ADB connect localhost: 4444
  • Now, you must install Python on your PC to use the Stitch tool downloaded from GitHub. Oh, and you must also install the Pillow library in Python with the command: pip installs pillow.
  • And to finish, go to the ADB command window and enter the following to capture: python ./wearscreenshotstitch.py ​​–round.
    • If your clock is square, change the “round” to “square” (without the quotes).

That’s all! The process can take a few minutes as multiple screenshots of the watch are taken and then all of them are joined into one elongated capture. We wish both methods of capturing the screen in Wear OS were simpler and that they do not require an external device, but this is what it is for now.
